He enjoined the 12th Emir of Katagum to use his experience as a retired federal permanent secretary to build on the enduring and inspiring legacies of his predecessor by ensuring peace and development of the emirate in particular, and the state in general.
According to President Buhari, “Traditional rulers are important in promoting and sustaining peace and development in our rural and urban communities.”
